Blue Plaque at the entrance to a property on Long Lane, Willoughton. 

Ethel Rudkin (1893 – 21 September 1985) was an English writer, historian, archaeologist and folklorist from Lincolnshire. She pioneered the collection of folk material, particularly from Lincolnshire, and her collections are now part of several public institutions, including the North Lincolnshire Museum.

Looking across part of the moated site with St Andrew's Church in the background. 

"The remains lie at the bottom of a gentle slope and take the form of a series of earthworks, including a moated platform, a pair of ponds and other water-control features, and a group of ditched enclosures. The site is thought to have formed part of the manor of Waldin the Engineer which was granted to the Benedictine abbey of St Nicholas in Angers, France, in the early 12th century. At the end of the 14th century, during the Hundred Years War, the property was confiscated by the king and in 1441 was granted to King's College, Cambridge"

This eighteenth-century vamping horn displayed at the west end of the nave is one of only six survivors to be found in English churches.

Six foot long and with an eighteen inch diameter trumpet, it was probably used to summon worshippers to prayer.

The horn was supposedly audible a mile away.

Willoughton lies 3 miles south of Kirton Lindsey.

The Knights Templar founded a preceptory there during the reign of King Stephen. After the suppression of the order in 1312 the site passed to the Knights Hospitaller in 1338 and King’s College, Cambridge in 1540.

Earthworks remain.
